Here are some more online resources that I’ve found that have made it into my google reader. Lots of great info here.
Asia In The Heart: asiaintheheart.blogspot.com
This is a great blog that is dedicated to books set in Asia, books with Asian characters, and Asian authors and illustrators. They focus on some incredible talent and it’s wonderful to learn more about illustration in other parts of the world.
Escape from Illustration Island: escapefromillustrationisland.com
This is probably one of my favorite blogs I’ve found yet. Thomas James created “Escape from Illustration Island” and it is devoted to providing useful content, encouraging community participation and help fellow illustrators escape their isolation. A definite must read.
